Rose City Brass Quintet celebrates the release of their first album, “Disquiet”. Conceived of and recorded during the intersection of the global pandemic and the social strife of 2020, RCBQ has commissioned and curated a set of works that speak to our times. Newly written works by Joyce Solomon Moorman, Dana Reason, Joey Sellers and Lars Campbell, some focusing on the isolation of the pandemic, others around the racial inequities that permeate our society, pair with existing works by David Sampson and Tomas Svoboda, speaking to the themes of oppression and isolation via the tragedies of the Greensboro Massacre and the tyrannical Communism in Czechoslovakia. Through these pieces, RCBQ aims to grapple, imperfectly, with this shared moment of disquiet. VIDEO Laudes Movement 1

Arooj Aftab’s liminal sound floats between classical minimalism and new age, Sufi devotional poetry and electronic trance, jazz structures and states of pure being. NPR praised her single “Lullaby” as one of the “Greatest Songs By 21st Century Women+”; the New York Times called her “Island No. 2” one of the “25 Best Classical Music Tracks of 2018”; and—if that’s not enough—Barack Obama just added Aftab to his 2021 Summer Playlist.

On Vulture Prince, the composer’s remarkable voice, backed by a team of renowned musicians, transports listeners to worlds once known. “Vulture Prince is about revisiting places I’ve called mine, places that don’t necessarily exist anymore,” Aftab says. “It’s about people, friendships, relationships—some relationships that were unexpectedly short term, and how to deal with that.” While composing Vulture Prince, Aftab lost her younger brother, Maher, and she dedicates this album to his memory—a signal of her gradual emergence from loss and grief.

The third full-length from Tall Heights, Juniors emerged from a period of profound turmoil and revelation for the Massachusetts duo. In the span of five months, Paul Wright and Tim Harrington experienced a convergence of events that included major health and substance-abuse crises among their closest loved ones, saying goodbye to Harrington’s grandfather and to a beloved grandfather figure for Wright, and—in far happier, yet still intense news—the announcement that each of their wives was expecting. Compounded by a series of shake-ups in their professional life, that upheaval coincided with the start of the pandemic. Rather than succumbing to the tremendous pressure of that point in time, Tall Heights chose to confront the chaos by creating within it. The result: an album that precisely channels the pain, uncertainty, and unbridled joy of its inception.

Philip Emilio Baker leads a group of world class musicians celebrating the life and legacy of iconic jazz pianist McCoy Tyner, whose mentor was John Coltrane. The evening will reflect the spirit of McCoy Tyner, who said: “I think music should have some spiritual elements because it’s not material. It’s another kind of dimension and it should be there for you to touch people’s spirit and lives. You need to give them a unique experience and if you don’t, something’s lacking.” 

Phil has traveled the world with Pink Martini, Diana Ross, Gino Vannelli, just to name a few and has, with fellow musicians Ron Steen, Jon Manis, and George Colligan, share experiences playing with McCoy’s collaborators. Also featured will be Japanese Koto player Masumi Timson and Cuban percussionist Miguel Bernal.

Rose City Brass Quintet celebrates the release of their first album, “Disquiet”. Conceived of and recorded during the intersection of the global pandemic and the social strife of 2020, RCBQ has commissioned and curated a set of works that speak to our times. Newly written works by Joyce Solomon Moorman, Dana Reason, Joey Sellers and Lars Campbell, some focusing on the isolation of the pandemic, others around the racial inequities that permeate our society, pair with existing works by David Sampson and Tomas Svoboda, speaking to the themes of oppression and isolation via the tragedies of the Greensboro Massacre and the tyrannical Communism in Czechoslovakia. Through these pieces, RCBQ aims to grapple, imperfectly, with this shared moment of disquiet. VIDEO Laudes Movement 1
